On the day she was born she reached up for her Mama;
You should have seen their faces when she climbed right up on her;
To the top of the monkey bars when she was just three,
Everybody said she was a chimpanzee!

She's a monkey girl
She's a monkey girl
She likes to swing from the trees and travel all over the world.
She's a monkey girl
She's a monkey girl
Come on and do the monkey boogie just like the little monkey girl.

She's got real strong legs, she can climb like an ape can
And real strong arms she can swing just like Tarzan,
But the thing I like best is her dance, it's so funky!
She jumps up and down and makes a sound like a monkey!

Well, I had to find out if it could really be true
If a girl could be a girl and a monkey too
She was hanging upside down and do you know what?
I saw her furry little monkey...Whooo!
